Jamal Suleiman, founder of the Palestinian Ansar Allah Movement has resigned as leader of the party, according to a circular.Suleiman was once a commanding officer with the Fatah Movement and fought alongside the Amal Movement against Hezbollah during the Lebanese Civil War. In 1989, Suleiman switched sides, aligning himself with Hezbollah against Amal and Fatah. Describing the current relationship between Ansar Allah and Hezbollah, Ouwayed said his party was "proud" of sharing ties with the resistance party.Ouwayed said the incident was not tied to tensions between Ansar Allah and Hezbollah.When asked whether tensions with Hezbollah grew when the party asked Ansar Allah to avenge Issa's killing, according to reports. According to Ouwayed 35 people affiliated with Ansar Allah were wrongfully indicted in the case for political reasons. Ouwayed maintains that Suleiman's convoy was targeted and that a third party had intervened to carry out the murders, denying any participation by Ansar Allah affiliates and Ahmad Rashid.
